I'm glad some of those Green Endlers found a home--I wish I had a set up for some of them, myself... Nice looking tank!

If you do set up a tank for them, I can send some to you. I have too many now I think.

You too dawg

Many of them have been hiding today... Hopefully. Hiding. I may have to wait and breed them to spread them out to people. We'll see. Shouldn't be long considering jake sent me a gravie female

does fish/ shrimps got sucked into the wet/dry filter on the back? the vertical holes looks pretty big for endlers or rcs.

Sometimes. But it's not a wet/dry filter. Looks like it, but it's not. Just flows through there to the chamber on the back right, where my CO2 goes in and then gets pumped back into the main tank. As far as I can tell, the sponge in the back is too big, and doesn't provide any space for anything to get through except for maybe baby shrimp. But in a way, it almost seems to me to be like a built-in breeder box the food gets sucked in there for them, I can put a little riccia in there, and the adults can't get in there. Seems pretty good to me!

I'll try to update pics again today. This tank has quickly become my favorite out of all of my tanks. But I think I need to have something more in the front right just behind the HC. I'm thinking Downoi. Or maybe some more Staurogyne repens. Some relatively low (but not really groundcover) plant suggestions are much appreciated!

Update! The Endlers did not fare well... CO2 mishap. Really a shame. I put my trusty hardy Betta in there. Can you help me name him? The plants have bounced back nicely from their low-light torture and the erio is doing better. I now have Staurogyne repens from 3 sources: Snail_Chen, Darkoon, and some guy in China that labeled them as toys on the packaging So, without further ado:







Also! I want a name for this tank. Give me suggestions. I'm thinking something having to do with Autumn, maybe? Now that I have that Ludwigia in there, the red has been popping quite nicely.

Genius,
That is a beautiful Spec you got there!
Quick question, the back wall of the Spec that separates the filter chamber, there is a little slot at the rather close to the bottom of the tank. Does you substrate cover the slot?
